Pretty Little Liars Star Janel Parrish Lands Role on Drop Dead Diva
We’ll never tire of seeing Pretty Little LiarsstarJanel Parrish (Mona) on TV, which is why we’re so glad to hear she just snagged a guest spot on an upcoming episode of Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva. Who will Janel be playing? Read on to find out!
According to Entertainment Weekly, Janel will be playing a character named Chelsea Jones, “a cheerleader for a professional basketball team who finds viral video fame after someone captures her epic on-field meltdown on camera.” Chelsea seeks help from Jane, Drop Dead Diva’s model-turned-ghost-turned-lawyer protagonist, but the situation becomes more complicated when the head cheerleader starts bullying Chelsea.
It will be interesting to see Janel on the other side of the bullying equation. Though Mona started off as one of Alison’s favorite mean girl punching bags, we’re so used to seeing her in control of the situation, exacting her judgment on others. We’re excited to see Janel in another character’s shoes.
If, like us, you’re always on the lookout for more Janel, might we suggest the short film she recently starred in alongside fellow Pretty Little Liars star Brant Daugherty (Noel Kahn)? It’s called Something Wicked, and it’s awesomely unsettling. Check out theofficial synopsis for the horror short film: “Nothing is as it seems after Aidan (Brant Daugherty) saves Ronnie (Janel Parrish) from a dangerous encounter. ‘Something Wicked’ is an original horror short that zeroes in on our predisposition of evil and who we become when we face it.”
